ILTF partners with a variety of different groups to achieve its mission, including Indian nations, nonprofit organizations and businesses. Some of these collaborations have resulted in the creation of new organizations and enterprises that share many of our goals and work closely with us but operate as separate entities.


Indian Land Capital Company


The Indian Land Capital Company (ILCC) is a Native-owned, Certified Native Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) providing alternative loan options to Native nations for tribal land acquisition projects. Owned by the nonprofit Indian Land Tenure Foundation, ILCC was created in 2005 to bridge the gap in lending to tribes and to facilitate the acquisition of lands for social, cultural and economic purposes. As part of its commitment to the long-term stability and sovereignty of Indian nations, ILCC can assist interested tribes in the development of an active land acquisition strategy as well as aid in the implementation of sound plans for land management and future use. ILTF can provide grants and technical support to tribes seeking to develop their strategic plans in order to qualify for loans from ILCC.

National Indian Carbon Coalition


Climate change presents countless challenges for Native nations. It also offers tremendous opportunities that are enabling Indian tribes to generate millions of dollars in revenue through sustainable management of tribal lands. A partnership of the Indian Land Tenure Foundation and the Intertribal Agriculture Council, the National Indian Carbon Coalition is a program that helps tribes and landowners take advantage of carbon credit and other environmental value markets.

National Tribal Land Association


As tribes continue to effectively manage their land and natural resources, the need for education and sharing of information between Indian nations is greater than ever. NTLA seeks to work in harmony with tribal nations to create opportunities for land and natural resources staff working in land-related areas to learn, share and network with their colleagues from other tribes to expand their knowledge and skills related to the many facets of land ownership and management on Indian reservations. Each year, NTLA and ILTF co-host the Tribal Land Staff National Conference which provides educational opportunities on the latest land issues facing tribes, as well as providing an opportunity to network with others who work on land-related issues in Indian Country.
